(Editor's note: Mrs.
Norma Goldman, adjunct
assistant professor of Latin;
mythology and epic litera-
ture at Wayne State Univer-
sity, was on a sabbatical in
Rome last summer and this
article is a brief review of an
important chapter in Italian
Jewish history. It is quoted
from an address she deliv-
ered to the Senior Adult
Council of the 10 Mile
Jewish Community Center.
(Mrs. Goldman earned a
BA degree in Latin and an
MA degree in English and
Classics from WSU. She is
the co-author of "Latin via
Ovid," with Jacob Nyenhuis
of Hope College. She is the
past president of the Detroit
Classical Association and
the secretary for the An-
tiquaries Society of the De-
troit ,Institute of Arts. She
also is the staff adviser, for
